A few weeks ago I had a bit of a clear out/re-jig of my wardrobe, which I must say was rather liberating and has subsequently resulted in me setting up a Thinking Chap profile on eBay. The page will include items from my own personal menswear collection that have come to be more figure hugging than they once were. A consequence of age and over-indulgence I’m afraid. In addition to this, there will also be a selection of new ticketed items up for grabs.
I’ll be posting regular updates on the blog with certain of items up for sale on here before going to eBay auction. So if you see something you like, then feel free to drop me an email to request further pictures, ask questions on sizings, or just go right ahead and make me an offer: email@example.com
